Swell Summary

Buoy observations indicate that surf along south facing shores will be on the rise today, and a High Surf Advisory is in effect through Thursday. Surf will ease a little late Thursday into Friday, but will be reinforced with a larger, longer period south swell late Friday through the weekend. Peak surf heights with this second swell will easily reach Advisory-levels, with potential for surf to reach High Surf Warning levels along south facing shores.

Surf along east facing shores will remain elevated and rough through the week. A small, mid-period east swell will also move through the next couple of days, but greatest contribution to seas will be from the short-period trade wind swell. Swells generated by Darby are expected to add to the mix this weekend, and will probably be biggest along east facing shores of the Big Island, where a High Surf Advisory may be required.
